So no microtransactions… (Gaming)

So Death Stranding has no Microtransactions…

But it has fucking product placement. Which is only a little bit less bad. >:-(

Really? I think that is so much worse. Microtransactions are a choice, seeing advertisement in a video I want to watch is not.

Technically, I guess I could make the choice to not play a game with advertisements in it but that is silly.


Product placement doesn't require 'frictions' and alteration of game design to function.

You literally just said they inserted a monster can in a world that really shouldn't have one. That is an alteration of the game story to fit that in there.

The words “story” and “game design” mean very different things.
